Travel Book Shop Shows Importance of Reading

These ads for the Travel Book Shop show the importance of reading about the culture of the country you are visiting--otherwise, you might end up in a funky situation.

The copy "Too late for the Travel Book Shop," is used with illustrations that show unfortunate tourism scenarios. One ad shows a guy wearing an "I Love NY" t-shirt next to a guy from the Taliban, another shows a guy unknowingly eating cat eyes in an Asian country, while a third shows a guy peeing on a religious Indian symbol (with an arrow coming at him).

The ads are pretty funny and they showcase the importance of getting a book about the place you are planning to visit. Stats for Comic Illustrations for Tourism Trending: Older & Chilly
